Good Food Sticks to Your Ribs!
We had a complete day at home and so a slow cooked dinner was on the menu. Simple and hearty, perfect after a chilly day spent outside in the yard. A whole rack of ribs, sliced onion, lots of garlic and bbq sauce (store bought this time - I wanted to spend the day outside!). Slow cooked for about 6 hours and then transfered to the oven just to caramelize the sugars in the bbq sauce. This last bit takes about the same amount of time that you will need to make mashed cheddar potatoes, steamed garden carrots and a crisp green salad. Be sure to serve this one with lots of napkins as it is saucy finger food! The ribs are so tender that the meat actually falls off the bone, there is no need for barbaric bone gnawing at the dinner table. D-lish
Not much else to tell you about this dinner, it was that simple. But I am sure that a few photos would tell you a bit more.
